Quick Note re. Block Components
- Grammar and word work
- ENY Lesson
- Workstations with guided reading
We have seen evidence of grammar and ENY lessons every day. Our goal is to start Guided Reading no later than the end of September. There will be a PD on Wednesday, September 23rd, focused on supporting implementation. Make sure you have already completed the 20 day roll-out of workstations so you are ready to implement guided reading soon. Need support? Check out Tamlah's resources on SharePoint or email her!
The inclusion of workstations and guided reading is critical as this is when you will actually teach skills students need to develop their independent reading skills. The ENY lesson do not target word attack strategies, phonics, or fluency at instructional level. This has to happen in guided reading. We're excited to get this rolling in classrooms!
